Hey guys, so it's my understanding, per ATF regs, that private individuals (non-FFL holders) can send handguns out of state as long as they are sending them via UPS/Fed-Ex directly to an FFL and/or manufacturer. (See link)
Is this true? The reason I ask is because last sumer I tried to send a handgun to HK-USA to have some work done on it, and I was told at the UPS store here in Fairbanks that it is an Alaskan-wide UPS policy to not handle guns from private citizens, but rather only through FFLs. Can anyone confirm if this is true? If so, does anyone know if Fed-Ex has the same policy?
The reason I ask is because I'm making a trade with someone who lives in Oklahoma, and I'd like to avoid having to pay an FFL transfer fee twice (once for sending him my gun, and again for picking up his).
Ay help would be appreciated.
